We usually take down our Halloween decorations right after Halloween so we can give the turkeys their due before Christmas dominates the house. Their window of opportunity is always short. With everything going on in our lives the last few weeks, their time was even shorter. We didn't forget them though. We decorated the house this past weekend so they can, at least, be stars for a few days.
The ceramic turkeys. Most are salt and pepper shakers but there is a sugar bowl, a planter, a spoon rest and a napkin holder amongst the shakers. All of them are made in Japan
We fill in the spaces on the wall with old die-cut decorations. Most are turkeys
The Indians must get their due too. They were also at the first Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving cake toppers sit in the candy dish
Some Thanksgiving Gurley candles atop the fake fireplace
Most of the honeycomb turkeys hang out together. Some tiki mugs get pilgrim hats
This giant honeycomb turkey hanging from the ceiling always gives us the stink eye!
Rubber Thanksgiving ducks and plastic turkeys
The Peanuts gang was happy that we had a chance to stop by but, as much as we like popcorn, toast, jelly beans and pretzel sticks, we will save our appetite for turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and holiday pies at Monica's sister's house later on!
Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
